UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source. It's a battery which is used to power a PC or a server to prevent the loss of data in case the main power source fails for some reason or becomes unsafe. A diesel generator is more or less self-explanatory. UPSs and generators are widely-used as a backup in data centers to back up the power and to ensure the constant operation of all of the web servers located there. Due to the fact that the UPS works all the time, it provides the necessary power for the web servers to remain up and running until the generator starts and takes over. Using this type of a backup is critical for any data center or provider that wants to keep their hardware and info intact in case there is a power surge or outage, because it provides them with plenty of time to react until the problem is resolved and the main power supply is restored.
